The Ascended Master Saint Germain—Alchemist of the Soul

Ascended Master of Divine Alchemy

The soul of Saint Germain has played brilliant roles upon the stage of life for hundreds of thousands of years. Today Saint Germain is the avatar of the dawning Age of Aquarius. His forté is the recycling of all that binds and hinders the full expression of the soul into liberating light—an alchemy that anyone can learn. It is the alchemy of forgiveness. He is the Lord or the Seventh Ray, the violet ray that emanates freedom, alchemy, transmutation, justice and mercy.

Saint Germain has experienced a number of notable embodiments and a long history of striving in the service of man and God. Some of  these lifetimes included famous historical figures such as the prophet Samuel, Saint Joseph, Christopher Columbus, Roger Bacon, Francis Bacon, and Count Saint -Germain, who was known as the "Wonderman of Europe." Each lifetime built on Saint Germain’s mastery and preparation for his current role as the hierarch of the Golden-Crystal Age of Aquarius.1

The Prophet Samuel: Crowning the Biblical Kings

Samuel’s mother Hannah was the second wife of Elkanah. For many years, Hannah had no children. One year when Hannah and Elkanah went to the temple to make sacrifices and pray, Hannah begged God to allow her to have a child. To be barren in those days was a source of shame for women and was considered an indication that one was not favored by God.

A priest named Eli saw Hannah praying and realized her predicament . He blessed her and assured her that God had heard her prayers. A year later she gave birth to Samuel. And, as she had promised, brought Samuel to Eli as a young child to serve with him in the temple.

The prophet Eli’s time of transition grew near. So God spoke to young Samuel, calling upon him to be the next prophet of Israel. And Samuel accepted this holy work, travelling throughout Israel, urging the various tribes to work together and to cease worshiping idols.

It came about that the tribes desired a king to rule over them. Samuel was urged by them to appoint the one who would be their leader. God had already told Samuel that the results of the tribes desiring a king would be regretted, for their king would take their lands and goods and lead them into wars. They would know only oppression.

Upon hearing this message, the people turned a deaf ear to the prophet's warnings. Their choice was a man named Saul. Unfortunately, Saul lived up to God’s warning and there was much suffering in the land. In response, Samuel secretly anointed David as the true king of Israel. A conflict between Saul and David dominated the remainder of Samuel’s life. Samuel's anointing of David began the Biblical monarchy that formed the lineage of Jesus Christ.

Saint Joseph, Protector of the Christ

In addition to what is commonly known about Saint Joseph from New Testament accounts, information in apocryphal writings and more recent revelations fill in some details. For instance, Joseph and Mary not only bore the Savior Jesus but six other children, both male and female. In contrast to traditional portrayals, Joseph was not merely a carpenter but an artisan in stoneworking and an adept in the spirtual arts. the family lived within a devout community, the Essenes, whose beliefs included  the oneness of all life, that God dwelt within each soul and in his creation, and that striving and purity of motive were the way to God's heart.

Joseph, like Mary and Jesus, communed with the angels. It was Joseph’s faith in his own prophetic dreams that proved to be  key to his role as guardian of this most holy family. From the outset of the coming together of Mary and Joseph, angels had intervened. It was an angel that appeared to Joseph in a dream to reassure him that he should marry Mary although she was many years younger than he. After the birth of Jesus, an angel appeared to warn Joseph that Herod sought the life of the newborn. The family escaped  to safety--the town of Galilee, where Jesus grew to adulthood and gloried in his life's mission.  Joseph made his transition before Jesus entered into the fullness of his teaching and healing ministry. But Joseph had fulfilled his inner vow to protect Mary and to nurture and instruct the Christ in Jesus.

Roger Bacon, Scholar and Scientist

Roger Bacon was born in Somerset, England in 1214. Bacon pursued a life as a scholar and was engaged in academic and theological studies for decades. He became a professor at Oxford, specializing in philosophy. Eventually he became a friar in the Franciscan Order, but this prevented him from holding a teaching post. His activities were further restricted by a Franciscan statute in 1260 forbidding friars from publishing books or pamphlets without specific approval.

Bacon’s friendship with Cardinal Guy le Gros de Foulques, who became Pope Clement IV, proved to be highly fortuitous. The new Pope issued a mandate ordering Bacon to write to him concerning the place of philosophy within theology. As a result, Bacon sent the Pope his Opus Majus, which presented his views on the way philosophy and science could be incorporated into theology. Roger Bacon also wrote other works on alchemy and astrology.

During his prolific lifetime,  Bacon performed many scientific experiments and documented his work for posterity. These experiments are viewed as the first instances of true experimental science, several hundred years before the official rise of science in the West. 

Christopher Columbus, Discoverer of the New World

Christopher Columbus was born in 1451 in Genoa, Italy. At the age of twenty-two, he began an apprenticeship as business agent for three important families— the Centurione, Di Negro and Spinola families of Genoa. The countries of Europe had been trading with China and India over land, but with the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks in 1453, this route became treacherous. In response to this, Christopher Columbus with his brother Bartolomeo developed a plan to travel to the Indies by sailing directly west across the Atlantic.

After continually lobbying at the Spanish court for two years, Columbus finally made headway with Queen Isabella of Castille in 1492. Columbus departed from Palos de la Frontera with three ships—the Santa María, the Pinta and the Niña. Columbus' vision that there was a westward route over the Atlantic Ocean to the Indies, if realized, would allow Spain, in dire need of funds, to enter the profitable spice trade. In hindsight we realize that Columbus' discovery set the stage for the building of a new nation, founded on the principles of equality and religious freedom.

Francis Bacon—To Discover Truth, Serve My Country and Serve My Church

Francis Bacon was born on January 22, 1561. Biographers believe that Bacon was educated at home in his early years because of his ill health.  At  twelve he entered Trinity College, Cambridge, and lived there for three years with his older brother Anthony. Francis Bacon studied mostly Latin and the medieval curriculum common at the time.

For the next three years, Francis traveled extensively, visiting Blois, Poitiers, Tours, Italy, and Spain. His three goals were to discover truth, to serve his country, and to serve his church. Under the reign of James I, Francis Bacon translated the King James version of the Bible. An increasing number of scholars also believe that he was secretly working with a group of some of England’s best poets and writers, creating the plays now credited to William Shakespeare. Perhaps the most accepted and celebrated of Bacon’s own literary works is The New Atlantis.

Francis Bacon’s works popularized the inductive method of scientific inquiry. His demand for a planned procedure of investigation established the approach to scientific research still in use today. Knighted in 1603, he was given the title of Baron in 1618 and Viscount in 1621. He is recognized as one of England’s greatest philosophers, statesmen, scientists and authors.

The Wonderman of Europe

After he had already made his ascension, Saint Germain received an unusual dispensation. The Lords of Karma allowed him to return to Earth. As the Count Saint-Germain of the House of Rakoczy, he attempted to prevent the French Revolution and to form a United States of Europe. In befriending European royalty, he hoped to guide them into positive alliances, creating a United States of Europe. But his guidance and warnings failed.

He left no stone unturned to capture the attention of those in power—removing flaws from their diamonds, creating verse and writing it with both hands at the same time, entertaining them with his vast musical talent, wit and humor and his ability to speak with expertise on any subject. They enjoyed the show, but they dismissed his prophetic words. Count Saint-Germain's presence at court throughout this lengthy period—over one hundred years—is recorded in the diaries and correspondences of several monarchs and several members of their courts.

Darshan with the Children and the Adults on the Inner Child and Other Topics
Related to Families and Children

Messenger: Thank you. Well, Mother Mary's here, Jesus and Saint Germain and they desire to offer the children an opportunity to ask questions this morning, another darshan, unannounced. And after the children have an opportunity, the adults can ask questions that relate to being a child; for their own inner child or something to do with families and children. So that's the theme today—families and children—in preparation for Jesus' coming to talk about “feeding my sheep.” So, do any children have any questions of Mother Mary or Jesus or Saint Germain?

[Long Pause]

Messenger:  I have one question. Did Jesus have any brothers or sisters? Have you heard about that? Okay.

Mother Mary: My friends, yes, Jesus did have brothers and sisters. Each of my children were very special. And though I loved Jesus very much, I also loved my other children just the same. Jesus was often very quiet and didn't always play a lot with other children because he knew that he had a special mission in life. And he was sometimes too serious, I think. My other children were more “normal” as you would say. They liked to play games and have fun like you do. But they, too, grew up to be very, very special people. And some of them worked closely with Jesus later on after his mission began.

            Isn't it nice to be in a big family with lots of children? If you were an only child, it may be kind of hard. But it's always nice to be in the company of others who love you and who you love and in the company of friends. Having children is sacred. And sometimes people think that it would have been wrong for me to have other children, but why? Because children are from heaven and pure. Why you were all once children weren't you, you adults?

            And you know what it was like to grow up. So what we're doing today is remembering what it's like to be a child again; because it's so important to open our hearts, to laugh, to move around, to have fun, to not be too serious. So thank you, Anita for sharing with us all these beautiful songs. And Madame Caspari is definitely here with you and is beaming a big smile across the way. Thank you.

Messenger: So, does any adult, anybody have a question? Nellie?

Aspirant #1: Well it's a little bit serious but, part of me humanly is doubting and how do you eliminate that?

Messenger: One of our special friends says part of being human is doubting and how do you get over that? Doubting yourself or doubting the teaching or what's going on, or doubting the world or what? Just doubting in general? Okay.

Mother Mary: It's normal to question and to think through what you see to make sure that it's real, that it's not fake, contrived or unrealistic. Because some people are fooled by things, aren't they? And then they may walk a path that doesn't lead to where they need to go, right? Have you ever gone down a road that later you regretted and you wished you had not gone down that road or done something that you kind of regretted later?

It's okay because you learned something. As long as you get up and learn, right? So it is natural to doubt and to questions things. And if you don't, I don't think you're human. You wouldn't be here. It's natural to question authority, especially when you're a teenager because what you see people doing sometimes doesn't make sense. And some times adults say one thing and do another, or they're unrealistic in their expectations. And so, the deeper you think through something and question it and you really get to the core of what that thing is about—whatever it is—then you find a point of truth that you can somehow latch onto and come to a greater understanding.

Sometimes it takes time and you shouldn't always just jump into something right away without thinking what you're doing, right? Like you don't just jump in a river unless you know how cold it is, how fast the river is flowing, how deep the rocks are along the shore and if there are any stingrays in there, right? So, but as a young person, especially a teenager, sometimes we're very impulsive. You know what that means, right? We act quickly and as you get older you sometimes learn to not act so quickly; because you've learned that when you do it, sometimes you may get into trouble.

But when you're in the Now and when you actually get rid of your mind—the part that is always thinking so much that you're not in your heart—then God comes to you and gives you every answer you ever need. And so doubt usually comes from the mind, or kind of the brain, but never really from the heart. So if you're in your heart, your heart knows the truth. And you'll feel joy. You'll feel that special something that says to you, “Aha!, yes, this is real, because I feel God in me now.”

So if you come to a point where you don't feel that, then stop, close your eyes and ask God again for an answer. And you'll get it. But you have to sometimes get out of your brain. And some of us, especially in the United States and the West, are too mentally oriented because that's the way we're trained. If people would take more time to meditate and to quiet themselves, then every answer they ever need is right here. [Mother Mary points to her heart.] Does that make sense? Does that answer it, or does it not quite answer it?

Aspirant #1: Yeah.

Messenger: Helps?

Aspirant #1: Yeah, I mean, sometimes, in the Now, it's hard to know—when you're not getting the answer from your heart, there is no answer.

Messenger: There's no answer? Can't feel the answer? So what do you do when you can't feel it? Is it like a long-term question or is it like something that you just need to know right now, like a life issue or a personal issue? Between friends or…

Aspirant #1: No, in general.

Messenger: In general?

Mother Mary: You have total access to God's love and light. And if you believe through faith—which is the thing that conquers doubt—that you can know fully the answer to your question, or the thing that you're doubting. And you can latch on to that little seed of faith and believe in your own God that's in you. Then it will grow and grow like a mustard seed. And so sometimes it may take a little while but it's not always easy, is it? Ok. I think—I think adults are still figuring it out. So don't feel bad. Okay?

Messenger: (To Aspirant #2) Did you have one?

Aspirant #2: Yeah.

Messenger: Okay.

Aspirant #2: Is Mother Mary like a flower?

Messenger: Is Mother Mary like a flower?

Messenger: Well, Jesus wants to answer this since Mother Mary looked at him and said, “Okay, you talk!”

Jesus: My mother, Mary, is truly a flower of God, a flower of love. The greatest flower I know that has ever walked the earth. For what is a flower but a beautiful expression of God's love? When you see any flower, especially a rose, and you smell it and you look at the color, how it's designed, you can't help but think good things, can you? Those who have seen Mother Mary as I have know a beauty, a grace and a love almost beyond description. What flower do you think Mother Mary is—a daisy, a lily?

Aspirant #2: Lily.

Jesus: I think she's a lily too. Lilies are pure and Mother Mary, my mother is so pure. Some people have called her a rose of heaven. Some people have called both of us a Rose of Sharon. I'm glad that you think of her as a flower. She does smell very sweet. And sometimes when she comes, people smell beautiful smells like roses or lilies or other beautiful flower smells. Because wherever she goes, she brings a fragrance of heaven that's so beautiful to smell. Have you ever smelled smells of angels or Mother Mary and known that she was near you?

Aspirant #2: [inaudible]

Jesus: Well, maybe one day you will.

Messenger: Anybody else?

Aspirant #3: Beloved Saint Germain, I know that you love all the children and youth. And I was just wondering if there's anything you wanted to say to these children today?

Saint Germain: You are here because your parents know me, because you know me and together we have a lot of work to do even though you're still at an age when you like to play. How would you like to work with me to make your life's work so fun that the joy you experience will make it fun for everyone else everywhere?

            You've heard me talking about the Pure Joy System. I think each of you has something to give to the world. And to give it in a way that's so joyous and fun that people will just not stop smiling! Don't you feel better when you smile, when you're happy? Well, that's what heaven is like. And so the more you learn about joy and love and happiness like you did this morning with all these songs, that's what I want you to bring to the whole world. Because there's a lot of people that aren't happy, right? So you're my special children to learn how to make people truly happy from the inside out. Because that's the best happiness, right? Thank you for asking.

Aspirant #4: Jesus first tells the story in the Corona Class Lessons about how we first stepped away from God, Our Father's stream of the Presence of God coming down upon us and he talks about how we were tricked. And I thought that might be an interesting story for all of us, so that we could understand actually how we got tricked and maybe we could see it coming the next time.

Messenger: Thank you for sharing that. Do you want to take that story from the Corona Class and create something that will be easier for children to understand?

 Aspirant #4: [inaudible].

Messenger: Ok, and then bring it to Anita and together you can share it.

Aspirant #4: He doesn't tell the whole story.

Messenger: He doesn't tell the whole story. He just says we got tricked.

Aspirant #4: And he said it had to do with doubt and disobedience that initially we got tricked. And it was the fallen angels that tricked us, the apple phase and the serpent phase. In the dictation, Jesus just talks about how it was the Serpents who tricked us and he doesn't elaborate on it. It isn't much in the story. I can share with Anita, but we really could kind of use a little more detail. And I think it would be a good story. [Laughter].

Saint Germain: There are many fairy tales that children can learn from. Some have even been made into beautiful Disney movies. Can you think of one, children, where someone got tricked? I know one—Pinocchio!

            Now what happened to Pinocchio? Was he a wooden boy, but he wasn't really a boy? And what did he want to do? He wanted to what? He wanted to have fun and somebody tricked him, didn't they? And he went to a place where people were smoking and doing bad things. And he started to tell lies. And what happened when he told a lie? His nose grew? And how did he get saved? Who saved him? What? His dad, Geppetto?

Audience: His conscience.

 Saint Germain: Well, his conscience, Jiminy Cricket was his conscience, right?

So this is a very important story because Pinocchio got tricked by others who didn't have good intentions, didn't they? They weren't looking out for him in a good way. And they wanted to take him—they took him to—what was that land called that was kind of bad? What did they call that?

Audience: Pleasure Island.

Saint Germain: Pleasure Island! Okay, well I think that this is the type of story that children should study and their parents should tell them the inner meanings. Do you want to smoke when you get older?

Audience: No! No! No! No!

Saint Germain: No. Well, don't be tricked when someone comes to you and offers you something that's not good. And so the original trickery was a long, long time ago. And the story is told in “Climb the Highest Mountain.”¹ So if you want to know more, Lisa, you can go back to that and study it. Because there is something called “The Fall.”² It's an allegory, but it actually happened. And that's when we came into these bodies when we were originally just spirits, spirit sparks of God.

            And then when we were tricked, then all of us came down into this dimension. Now we all have physical bodies, but at one time we just had fire bodies. We were spirits. So now we're learning not to be tricked and we're going to eventually become ascended masters and return back to our original bodies of light.

            And sometimes we get tricked even when we're on this path and we know the path. But the Buddha can help us to know the way, which is called “The Middle Way”. And that way is beautiful. Thank you very much.

Saint Germain: There's other Disney stories that you can learn from and I can think of another one about Snow White. Does anybody know about that one and how somebody got tricked? Yes.

Audience: [inaudible]

Saint Germain: The witch—the witch turned herself into an old lady that came with an apple, and she tricked Snow White into eating the apple, right? Well maybe Lisa can help you figure out what the apple really means and she can also help you figure out what Pleasure Island was about. And why Pinocchio wanted to become a real boy instead of a wooden boy. Because I think there's meaning behind all that. Okay. Nancy?

Aspirant #5: This is for the kids and any master. I wanted to know, I'm curious if the children have ever wondered about how they got in the families they got into. Whether they, you know, picked their parents out or they picked the kids out before they even were born. And what the masters want to say and what the kids want to say if they want to ask.

Saint Germain: Do you think you picked your parents? I see a lot of nodding yeses. Why do you think you picked your parents?

Audience: [inaudible]

Saint Germain: Maybe you had them in your last life and you liked them! [Laughter and applause]. Okay. I think in most cases your parents have to serve you, right? So you probably have the better karma. Because your parents have to raise you and serve you and feed you and clothe you and all those things! So usually the children have a better karma than their parents, don't you think?

Audience: [inaudible]

Saint Germain: I turned into a parent?

Audience: [inaudible]

Saint Germain: Most people turn into parents later, right? Okay, so then your children will probably have really good karma and you have to serve them, right? Does anybody else have any ideas on that? Any children know why they picked their parents? Kayla, do you know why you picked your parents? You don't? [Audience laughter]. John, do you know why you picked your parents?

Aspirant #6: I'm guessing karma. [Audience laughter].

Saint Germain: I'm guessing karma?

Saint Germain: What about you, Nellie?

Aspirant #1: They have gifts they can show us.

Saint Germain: They have gifts they can show you.

Aspirant #1: That you need for your mission.

Saint Germain: That you need for your mission. Wow, that's great!! Wow, this is pretty profound stuff. I think that before you came into this life, your soul met with your parents' souls and you chose each other. I think it's a mutual thing that you agreed upon. And if you want to know more about this, there's books called “Life Between Life” and “Life Before Life” and “Life After Life”. Maybe someday there'll be one called “Life Inside Life.”

            And a lot of these books talk about what happens before you're born and the choices you make and why you make those choices to pick certain parents. And I think that if you read those books or your parents read a little bit to you, that you can come into a better understanding of this. And then maybe you can meditate on your parents and figure out why you chose them. And maybe there's still something that you have to do to balance the scales. You know what that means, balance the scales? What do you think that means?

Audience: Balance the karma?

Saint Germain: Balance the karma, right. And if you learn what that thing is, or a number of things, then it can help you to have a really good time with your parents. Or what some people call relationships, right? And then you can both love each other so much that you don't fight very much. You both respect each other and you get along, you have fun. You're always—most of the time you're happy. Okay. Thank you. That was a really good question.

Messenger: Did you get that answered enough for you?

Audience: Yes.

Messenger: Okay.

Aspirant #7: The question I have is that can you tell us more about our Inner Child, our soul. And what do we need to do to become as a little child to enter the kingdom of heaven?³

Saint Germain: God is a child. To enter the kingdom of heaven, you must purify yourself. The easiest way to purify yourself is to be like a humble child who is always ready to learn, always experimenting. Each new day when you awake is a fresh new opportunity to grow.

Adults become too crusty. So what is a crust? It's bread that's been burned too long, right? Or it's at the edge. Well, if it's at the edge, it's not in the middle or the heart. So if you're too crusty, you have to go into your heart. And learn to sing more, play more, be more. Someone said earlier the children are in the Now.

The key to your ascension, all of you adults, is to learn to be God now. You should all observe children. And even consider taking courses, like that taught by Anita where in observing the spontaneity and the inner fire of the child and how the child loves to learn naturally, you can become more natural yourself. Naturalness, genuineness is what children are. Sometimes adults are no longer genuine. To become genuine, tune into the genius of God and you as a flower.

William, you know that your soul is feminine, right?

Aspirant #7: Yes.

Saint Germain: The feminine aspect of God is gentle, flowing, gracious, pure, always desires to please the Spirit Most Holy. So to contact the Inner Child of your soul, meditate on the Divine Mother, all of her qualities and see your own soul being mothered by and nourished by the Divine Mother. Thank you.

Messenger: Okay. Do you have a question?

Aspirant #8:  I want to ask how to teach religion to children. Maria Montessori answered that we teach religion by living it before them. I would like to know, beloved Mother Mary, if you have anything to tell us on how we can support the spiritual development of our children.

Mother Mary: Children learn best when they have opportunity to share, and when you ask questions, rather than mostly preaching to them. As the mother of Jesus, many times I simply asked Jesus a simple question that I knew would require him to come to an understanding of the truth that he could discern himself. The discussion started and then he would ask questions of me. And I would respond and then ask another question. This happened naturally and the flow of our understanding was one whereby I allowed him to teach me while I was also teaching, for your children will truly teach you many things if you ask the right questions of them. What a paradigm shift!

            Consider ways to use the Socratic method whereby you draw forth from your children their own divinity by asking the right questions, often pointing to nature as examples on your behalf. Remember when I said to Jesus, “They have no wine.” What was not in the scripture was “Will you help them, my son?” It was a question. And from that question he saw the need and performed his first miracle.

Your children can also perform miracles if you lead them by drawing forth their Godhood. Develop new ways of teaching by watching, listening, understanding and then leading through this method. Call to Maria Montessori, Madame Caspari and they will, with me, give you new methods to help teach. Thank you.

Saint Germain's 2015 Prophecy

YouTube interview of Saint Germain on Prophecy for 2015:
